SPROCKETS: A Little Rain Won’t Hurt your Porsche

By David Robertson, Region President

It doesn’t seem like it has stopped raining in the

last couple of months. This has been challenging for

all types of outdoor activities including the driving

events hosted by our club. DE, Tours, and Mavs &

Mochas have continued to press on, rain or shine. I

have been impressed (if not amazed) by the turnout

for these events in the rain. This really points to the

passion our members have for driving and coming

together. As I have mentioned previously, Porsches

are meant to drive in all conditions!

For those of us who use our Porsches as daily

drivers, we have no choice but to brave the elements

and drive in varying weather conditions to get

to work or other obligations that transportation

requires. Often, if I don’t stop by the grocery store

on my way home from the office in my 911, it’s

going to be the pickles and ketchup from July 4th

for dinner. I know that I should have these things

planned out but many times when I look out the

window at 6 pm and the rain is pounding down it

dawns on me that I have a few errands I have to

run before I can get the car into my dry garage.

As I write this page it looks to be another very

rainy day. The forecast is ugly, and everything is

soaked from previous rain. I will be getting in my

911 within the hour and heading out perhaps a little

more cautiously than usual to a car show where I

know that even in the rain I am going to have a

great time with my fellow Maverick members!

MAVS OF THE MONTH:

TJ Kroele, Chris Sorrells, Mark Schnoerr

We are very lucky in our club to have so many

talented individuals with such a diverse set of

backgrounds and experience that

are always more than gracious

with their time and expertise

wherever it can add value to one

of our programs. TJ, Mark, and

Chris have teamed up and spent

countless hours over the past few

months to develop a proposal to

make sure that the DE program

remains competitive with other

groups’ DE events and relevant

for the future. Even though our

club is a non-profit organization,

2 November

we still have to think like any other business to keep

up with the shifting demographic environment

and competition from other driving programs in

the area. Many of these challenges are new and

we cannot waste any time getting in front of them.

These three individuals have combined expertise

in building successful businesses, a lifetime of

racing, DE Instruction and many, many years of

participating in, and running driving programs

both in the Maverick region and other car clubs.

Chris, Mark and TJ, we appreciate all of the

time and effort that you have put into ensuring

the continued success of the Maverick Region

DE program!

Tradition is a commitment. Without our tradition and without our core values, we would not be where we are today. We plan to uphold the standard of

technical excellence set by Ferry Porsche well into the future. Intelligent dynamic mobility has a great future ahead of it. And we have the solid technologi-

cal expertise, creative employees and unique team spirit to be involved. We have what it takes to ensure that the Porsche brand continues to fascinate –

even in another 70 years.

The first vehicle to bear the Porsche name was registered on June 8, 1948: It was the 356 “No.1” Roadster. This is the day on which the Porsche brand

was born. The Type 356 turned Ferry Porsche’s dream of a sports car into a reality. “His vision at that time embodied all of the values that still define the

brand to this day”, said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, at yesterday’s New Year Reception at the Porsche Museum. Repre-

sentatives from the state of Baden-Württemberg as well as from the city of Stuttgart and the worlds of politics, economics and society, joined Porsche to

celebrate the beginning of its anniversary year with the slogan “70 years of the Porsche sports car.

Founders Day: Maverick Region’s Anniversary Party

By Debi Kruder

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a year since we

celebrated our 55th Anniversary at our Founders Day

event last December. I still remember perfect weather,

toys, the smell of barbeque, laughter and conversation,

and many fond memories from the evening. This year

promises to be no different.

Please mark your calendar and register today as we

celebrate Porsche’s 70th Anniversary at our Founders

Day Event on Saturday, December 1. It’s one day, three

events, and over 2800 members!

The morning will kick off with our monthly Mavs

& Mochas bright and early at Nordstrom’s North Park,

where we will also host the second annual Top Ten

People’s Choice Car Show. Nordstrom continues to be a

gracious host to our members, generously opening their

department store doors early to allow us to sneak through

for coffee and shopping. And what better time of year

than December? So, rain or shine, bring your Porsche and

your pocket book to start that Christmas shopping!

Speaking of shopping: don’t forget to load up your

Porsche too with holiday goodies for children in need, as

we will be departing Nordstrom for our second annual

Mavs Toy Parade at 10:30 am. As last year, the Maverick

PCA is partnering with the Plano Police Department in

support of Plano Christmas Cops. This was a highlight

of Founders Day last year for me,

personally driving our 356 with

windows full of stuffed pups,

board games, and baby dolls,

with Christmas tree on top to add

to the merriment! So motor your

car full of new and unwrapped

toys, baby supplies, and new

coats for all ages, but especially teens.

Once your car is unloaded and a quick nap is taken,

it’s time for the Founders Day grand finale with dinner,

drinks, and more fun than you can shake a gearshift

at! Many of your favorite things about last year will be

back, along with some wonderful additions.

First, an exciting new venue: Grapevine Porsche.

This new dealership boasts a two-story venue with

the latest design and features including a classic car

shop. For those of you in attendance at the Grapevine

Porsche grand opening in

September, I think you will

agree that this venue will not

disappoint. Many thanks for

opening their doors to us, as

well as their financial support

to subsidize some of the cost

for our members.

New this year too is our

very first online silent auction

for our charity: the Huffaker-

Hughes Hope House. Yes, you

read that right -- the items

photos, descriptions, bidding,

and payment will all take place

online! Just visit the website,

https://www.32auctions.com/MPCAHopeHouse and

start bidding now! Our Founders Day Silent Auction

is our largest financial contributor to our Mav PCA

charity. Last year, with the contributions of our

sponsors and members, our Silent Auction raised

nearly $10,000, and this year we are challenging our

Mavs to increase these contributions to achieve our

2018 Founders Day goal to support the Hope House

in the amount of $12,000. Hope exists to eliminate

domestic violence through intervention, offering

shelter, counseling, support, and education to promote

the healing of abusive relationships. Maverick Region

is proud to partner with this great cause.

Back by popular demand to our Founders Day

evening are two favorites: Pecan Lodge and Steel City

Pops! If the name Pecan Lodge makes your mouth

water, you’ll be happy to know that, in addition to their

award winning pulled pork and smoked chicken, we’ve

added their smoked brisket to the menu this year too!

Mix in 200 or so of your favorite

Porsche people, our Maverick

Photo of the Year Contest, our

James Shoffit Maverick of the

Year Award, a little live music

from a duo by the name of Fanci

(with a mixed bongo flair) and

you are sure to have a great night!

Registration is now available online at mav.pca.org and

on social media. Early registrants receive a discounted

rate so don’t hesitate. It’s sure to be one of your

December highlights in 2018!

Maverick Tech Session Series: Growler Labs Recap

By Michael Baynton

photos by Bill Orr

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power

corrupts absolutely. – Lord Acton

One could wonder if historian Lord Acton’s most

famous religious quote (way back in 1887) might have

been applicable if he had been inclined to tether a few

extra horses to the front of his carriage. Hard to say.

But what can be said definitively in 2018 is that some

owners of powerful modern Porsches agree that an extra

dollop of vehicular corruption is certainly a good thing.

On Wednesday evening, September 26, a group of

60+ power-hungry owners descended on Growler Motor

Labs in Plano to learn about options for making their

Porsches perform above and beyond what the good folks

in Stuttgart deem prudent. Focusing primarily on watercooled

Porsches (especially those with easily prodded

turbo snails under the hood/boot), Growler owner and

8 November

tuning expert Chris Fleming clearly laid out the various

upgrade paths to deliver safe and reliable power gains.

Three primary solutions were discussed: AMS hardware

such as intercoolers and piping, COBB Accessport tuning

software, and high-end Akrapovic exhaust systems.

Distilling very complex engineering principles such as

air flow optimization, turbo boost generation, and heat and

pressure management into easy-to-understand language is

Chris’ forte. He did a terrific job of explaining how various

aftermarket components (either individually or as part

of a larger system) can improve the overall efficiency and

subsequent power delivery of Porsche motors. Parts laid out

on a table for examination and a customer 911 on a rack for

closer inspection were perfect visual aids for our members

to see the complex engineering solutions up close. The

ongoing questions and answers really demonstrated the deep

engagement between our members and Chris and his team!

As always, Growler had staff on hand to answer questions,

and their shop space was immaculate and welcoming. Pizza

and drinks were provided beforehand, and at the end of the

session Growler marketing manager Al Muir generously

presented every member in attendance with a “$100 Off”

certificate toward the systems that were discussed that

evening. What a fabulous bonus to end the evening!

Many thanks again to Chris and Al for being such

generous hosts, and a special shout-out to the Mav

volunteers (Bill, Jimmy, Mike, Derrick) who arrived early

to help with parking and set-up. We couldn’t do this

without you!


Your mind’s been racing.

Catch up.

Decades of dreaming, fulfilled instantaneously. The iconic 911 Carrera. Legendary

handling, immediate power, and decades of motorsport heritage. It is the full

measure of a sports car. Found only in a Porsche. Porsche. There is no substitute.

The 911 Carrera.

Rennsport Reunion VI: As told by our members

By George Luxbacher and Don Sebert, Region Rally Co-Chairs

pphotos provided by Authors

Rennsport Reunion. This event is

Bob Aines

known by most Porsche enthusiasts, and

based on the 80,000-plus that showed up at Laguna

Seca at the end of September, growing in popularity.

This was my fourth and best yet.

A group of four cars departed DFW Monday

morning and stopped at former Maverick Steve Fallon’s

home in Albuquerque for refreshments before heading

to our hotel and dinner. Some of our party headed to

the casino after dinner to cover the costs. We had four

more cars join us to make a convoy of eight.

Our next overnight was in Bakersfield, where we

had our one mechanical issue: a broken shift rod. The

Porsche community came through with a recommended

shop which had the repair completed and Mark Hanna

back in the road by 9:30.

We rolled into Laguna Seca around 11:00 Wednesday.

This was move-in day, and a great time to visit and

catch up with old friends before the crowds and event

schedule were to keep people busy. The best description

of this event is total Porsche overload. Where else can

you see eight 959s parked together, a lineup of 917s,

908s, and a couple of 906s. A 918 rolling through the

paddock doesn’t even get a notice.

This being our

first Rennsport,

we had an idea of what to expect

from fellow returning Mavs, but to

recap with one of Bill’s infamous

expressions: WHOA!

There is truly something for

everyone; you might call it a car

And the cars are just the icing: the drivers who drove

them in anger back in the day, reliving their experiences

on stage, is a highlight. I was asked what was most

memorable from the weekend and it had to be the La

Mans start for the tractor race.

The drive home was uneventful, which is the best

kind. What a great trip, event, and group of Porsche

friends to share it with. If you have never been, you

should plan on making it to the next!

Above: 919 warming up in the paddock, you really could get that close.

Debi Kruder

vintage cars in the paddock and the

next moment you would see that

same car on the track with several

others with speeds of 100-plus

mph passing one another. Whether

it was the racers in full gear, the

engine sounds, the history, or the

number of rare Porsches, you were

facing turn 4, or the straight from

behind pit row. My most favorite

memory will always be the look on

Kruder’s face (like a kid in a candy

shop!) especially when he met

Derek Bell and David Hobbs. Their

autographs are his take-home prize

in the bill of his official Rennsport

show that happens to have a race or

a race that has a car show. What we

found amazing was that you would

be admiring one of hundreds of

12 November

quite simply kept in awe.

The track itself is a marvel with

so many vantage points, from the

famous Corkscrew, the grandstands

cap. Suffice it to say Porsche’s 70th

Anniversary celebrated at

Rennsport will always be a

memorable


Rennsport

Michael McGrath

was a bucket

list opportunity for me. With family

commitments I had a 20-year gap in

my Porsche ownership history, and

felt I had missed experiencing a lot

of great events and people during

that time. I made this trip into a 10-

day journey with my Porsche 981.

We visited seven National Parks and

Monuments on this trip and traveled

some amazing roads.

Arriving at Laguna Seca I was

immediately impressed with the

organization of the event and the

sheer quantity of amazing Porsche

cars and history. Over the next

several days I was able to get up

close and personal with P-cars that

previously I had only read about in

books or had seen in videos online.

The history ranged from the first

production 356 roaster (which was

later driven on the track by Mr.

Porsche and his wife) to the latest

reveals of the Porsche Speedster,

935, and PCA GT3 in that beautiful

blue color! The Chopard Heritage

Display featured an impressive

display of Porsche racing history

ranging from the rare Model 804

Formula One car to the variations

of the early 718 giant killers to later

iconic models like the Martini-clad

935, 936, and many more.

The best aspect of this event was

the chance to chat with car owners

and fellow Porsche fans while looking

over the displays and racing cars as

they were prepped for their hot laps.

The other opportunity was to meet

some racing heroes in person, or at

least be up close to them, as part

of the many interviews that were

conducted each day.

The most special moments for me

were casual conversations with Hurley

Haywood and Norbert Singer. Hurley

and I shared the track one weekend

at Lime Rock Park in the early 90s,

as I did Formula Ford and he ran the

Audi Quattro with teammate Hans

Stuck. We reminisced for a while and

then fast forwarded to a discussion

about the upcoming release of his

documentary movie. In 1992 I worked

on a project for my Master’s degree,

documenting the effort of Porsche to

enter Indy Car Racing Series in the US

(Project 2708), developing not only

the engine but also their own chassis.

Norbert had responded to my letters

back then and sent me some very

helpful information. This was simply

a chance to say thank you.

In all, Rennsport was a fabulous

experience and wonderful journey.

I can’t wait for the 75th anniversary

celebration to come!

As the name implies,

Carey Spreen

Rennsport (which of course

means “race sport” or simply “racing” in the language

of the Fatherland) focuses on Porsche’s vast racing car

history, with seven different historic race car classes

on track each day, practicing, qualifying, and actually

racing wheel-to-wheel. But the unique part is that you

can get as close as you want to those race cars – they

are on display right there in the paddock,

where you can walk right up and touch

them, although it’s better if you don’t!

But the point is this: one minute your

favorite race car is right in front of you,

a static display of automotive art, and the

next minute it’s being started and driven

onto the racetrack, navigating a sea of

spectators as it winds through the paddock

to the hot pits.

That is the heart of the Rennsport

Reunion experience, and I strongly urge

you to put it on your list of things to do

before you . . . well, before you can’t!

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

By Bill Kruder

photos by Jim Hirsch and Andrew Barber

This month, sadly, I would like to share with you a very special friend we

recently lost. I met him about three and a half years ago at one of our Mavs &

Mochas: we would say hi, talk about the cars, and of course he would wander off

taking hundreds of pictures.

Then a few months later, at the Mavs & Mochas held at Stonebriar Community

Church, we started to talk, and I mentioned that I had retired from JC Penney.

Andrew said, “that’s funny -- my Dad retired from JCP.”

The small world it is, I knew his Dad when I had first come into the Home

Office in Plano in the early ‘90s.

Andrew and I decided to go inside and watch the Grand Prix Pinewood cars race.

Well about an hour later, who walks in but his dad, Don Barber, and we proceed

to get to know one another more

over grilled cheese and fast 7” cars.

Our friendship continued over the

next three years. He was always

there no matter the weather, with

camera in hand, providing us with

some of the most unique angles,

perspectives, and lighting that made

you altogether see our Porsches in

a whole new way. And he didn’t

stop there . . . always capturing

friendships and people too.

While you might not have met

him in person, I’d venture to say

you know him very well through

his camera work, which appeared

on many Slipstream covers, not

to mention countless articles each

month. I, as well as the Club,

consider him instrumental in

driving friendships, and his quiet

spirit and amazing talent will be

greatly missed.

So here is the next in my series

of “conversations”, this one

captured through Andrew’s lens.

His pictures tell all the real story

we need.

Maverick Marktpreis: Boxster (986)

by Peter Wen

Porsche is the most profitable car company in the world

today with 250,000 annual vehicle sales worldwide. It is hard

to imagine 25 years ago that Porsche struggled financially. With

a stagnant product lineup, only 14,000 cars were sold in ‘93! It

desperately needed a low cost, high production model to turn the

company around. Enter the Boxster, the car that saved Porsche.

In ‘96, three years after the highly successful concept car

debut in Detroit, Porsche launched the Boxster: a boxer-engine,

two-seat roadster. Clever name, right? Code-named 986, the

first-gen Boxster was the first Porsche to leverage Toyota’s “justin-time”

manufacturing principle. It drastically reduced cost and

improved reliability. To further reduce expense, the Boxster was

jointly developed alongside the new 911, type 996. The two cars

shared similar looks and had many common parts.

The Boxster was a huge success. With exceptional handling

and unmatched open-top fun, it was the best-selling Porsche from

‘96 to ‘03. Today, you too can enjoy this Miata-inspired, Toyotaprocess-improved,

mid-engine roadster for around ten grand.

Excellence’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide

offered these price ranges for the

Boxster (986):

‘97-‘99 - $8,000-$12,000

‘00-‘02 - $8,500-$13,000

‘00-’02 S - $10,000-$17,000

‘03-‘04 - $10,000-$15,000

‘03-’04 S - $12,000-$18,000

Fun Fact: The Boxster was so popular,

Porsche had to contract Valmet, a

Finnish company, to increase production.

Valmet-assembled Boxsters have

the letter U in the 11th position of the

VIN (for Uusikaupunki, Finland).

Autocross Event 8: Lone Star Park

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

With the circus tent gone, the full lot at Lone Star

Park was available this time, and Scott Cummings, the

course designer, set up a very challenging autocross course

with many diverse elements and speed change-ups. This

is typical of the late-season layouts that also make lateseason

class championships points battles so close.

We had 16 Porsche entries in our P-classes and another

eight or nine Porsche spectators. Sigrid Schnoerr got many

of the Porsche spectators to sign waivers and jump in as

passengers in a variety of cars to get a taste of autocross.

I bet they enter an event soon after learning more about

all the excitement.

The Cayenne GTS driven by Igor Tulandin, at his

first autocross with his new toy, placed third in Class P1.

Yes, four-door Porsches have autocross classes and are

competitive out there!

Owen Coulman was determined to be the fastest raw time

and index time Porsche again and put in a couple of flyers in

his red 996 GT3 to keep the rear-engine faithful happy.

Class P4 had six drivers in three cars. The course

workers must have thought we got twice as many runs as

anyone else! Carey Spreen took his 924S to the fight on

this course, splitting Mark and Sigrid’s 914 best times and

also coming in ahead of Ed Mayo’s orange and blue early

911S. Sigrid was running in first place until the last runs

by Mark and Carey.

Scott Wolthuis got a new limited slip in his improved

and Hoosier-tired 911. It made him struggle on the tight

turns but he was flying in the sweeper. Doug Edney won

class P7 in his 996, and Sherry and Steve Farnham’s yellow

GT4 came up from Longhorn region to keep us all on our

Mavs & Mochas: Zims Autotechnik

By Pat Carmichael

Tradition . . . that’s what this month’s Mavs &

Mochas reflected in several aspects. First, Al Zim: his

presence reflects almost five decades of friendship and

service to the Porsche and enthusiast car community.

Second: all the people that brought the almost seven

decades of Porsche models to a time-honored club

event reflected a camaraderie without comparison.

Last but not least: the annual Zims Porsche swap meet,

reflecting what it’s all about. Dozens offering treasures

enthusiasts at all levels, from the technician club racer

to the weekend tinkerer, gathered to enable the eager

(or desperate) to find just what they need. It was good

times for all.

Free coffee from Felix Coffee, good weather, good

people, good conversation, and ample parking made

for a successful event. The volunteers were there bright

and early, all was prepared for a good turnout, and

around fifty cars obliged. Thanks to all who came; we

hope to see you all next month at Pearl Cup Coffee in

Richardson, TX. See y’all then, if not before!!!

Bucket List: Banff

By Wendy Shoffit

Two years ago, when the PCA Treffen committee

announced that Banff would be the destination in fall

2018, James’ eyes got wide! For years he had seen photos

of the area and knew he wanted to go! Then a year ago he

had a stroke and I was unsure if we would make it. First,

HE had to make it and then we’d see. Thankfully, he lived

and I knew I had to do everything to make this bucket list

item happen. So, we bought tickets we needed and made

important hotel reservations. The rest we would fill in as

it came along. The 31-hour drive (one way) was daunting

because James had ALWAYS done ALL the driving (his

choice). He loves to drive! Me, on the other hand . . . not

as much (I get sleepy). I decided to leave plenty of time

and drive each day until I got tired and wanted to stop.

We spent parts of five days getting there (first and last days

were three hours each). Approaching the hotel, we knew

we’d made the right decision! The area was spectacular.

We checked in to the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel,

which looked and felt like a castle. We grabbed a delicious

lunch in their restaurant and later that afternoon went to

the Treffen check-in. Everyone was welcoming, had great

information, and gave us a goodie “bag” complete with

winter vests for each of us. That evening was a meet and

greet with hors d’ouevres. We enjoyed seeing old friends

and meeting new ones. It was a “free night,” so we went

off property with friends to a delicious and very “foodie”

restaurant nearby with stuff like foam and Canola crisp.

Fancy schmancy.

Overnight temperatures dropped, and we awoke

to snow. Bright and early we drove to the nearby tour

launching area. Many were concerned they had the

wrong car and tires for the snow. We were smart to bring

our Macan with All Season tires (thanks to my smart

husband)! After the drivers meeting we set off on an

amazingly beautiful “Yoho Loop” tour while whistling

“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” We’d planned

to see the beautiful greens of the trees, we found it more

special to see them snow-covered but still drivable. We

saw great sites like the Takkakaw Falls and stopped at

breathtaking Emerald Lake for lunch. We’d tried to view

the spiral tunnels, but the snow was so heavy we couldn’t

see them. We were glad to have the extra vest layer

under jackets, as we were NOT properly prepared for

snow. That night we had a “Hoedown Dinner” featuring

amazing fiddlers from a local group.

Friday we again were up early (why does PCA not want

you to SLEEP?) to go on the Highway 40/Kananaskis (ask

me how to pronounce THAT in person) tour. Again, more

snow, slippery roads, but breathtaking scenery! This tour

we stopped at a local museum and saw (at a distance) a

few black bears. Another great dinner that night featuring

interesting foods from different provinces of Canada.

Saturday was “Navigator’s Day Off,” during which

they had bus tours available. We’d purchased tickets for

one tour, but we were running late that morning and

literally “missed the bus.” Regardless, we went into the

photos provided by the author

The Shoffit’s Macan in the mountains of Canada and requisite Porsche photo

content. Fairmont Banff Springs. Wendy and James (center) with some fellow

Treffen friends.

town of Banff and enjoyed walking along main street,

shopping, and eating Beaver Tails (pastry – look it up).

Others who went on the tours truly enjoyed themselves

and were glad they made it! Most tours all weekend

went off without a hitch from what I knew, except for

the Columbia Ice Fields, which were too rough for most

people to attend. Other than that, it was all good!

The final dinner Saturday night was a “Night at the

Castle” and it was great, like the others. The best part of

the evening for me was the presentation by two Canadian

RCMP “Mounties.” While we were skeptical about

being bored, when they started talking, we were quickly

entertained by his stories and explanation of why they

wear those funny shaped pants. Awesome guys and an

amazing time! We were thankful to be there with fellow

Mavericks Jerry and Myra Sutton and Madhu and Roshni

Rao (now living in NYC).

Sunday morning we were sad to leave, but anxious to

get on to the next leg of our trip… Lake Louise and then

to Rennsport Reunion VI in Monterey, CA (a week and a

half later)! Ahhhhh… what a journey.

Renegade Rallye: 2018

By Don Anderson

photos by courtesy author and Peter Wen

As a relatively new Maverick member, I was asked to

provide my perspective of my first drive to the Hill Country.

I had heard many good things about the area, and being new

to Texas, I was thrilled to be invited to go on this adventure.

Ten cars, 1100 miles, four days: it was a blast!

The drive started in Plano, where we gathered part of the

group. We met a few more participants en route in Cleburne,

and a couple more drove down later that evening and met

us at our hotel in Kerrville. The next three days were filled

with spirited driving and great scenery. I thoroughly enjoyed

the cuisine at different establishments along the way and was

grateful to be making new friends.

Like Letterman or ESPN, here’s my top 10 list for the trip:

10. Learning more about my car and the opportunity to use

“sport mode” in a meaningful way.

9. Not leading the pack or having to know where to go.

(Much easier following!)

8. The spirited driving was fun, but we kept it safe and

within our capabilities.

7. While turning onto one of the many fun and twisty roads

that Mark Palmer had selected for us, a sheriff got

interested and inserted himself in the middle of the pack

and followed for far too many miles -- until we pulled off

at a scenic river crossing to take pictures

(without incident).

6. A young boy was mesmerized by all of our cars parked

together at a coffee shop stop and rated each of them (he

liked the one with the big wing best, of course).

5. Peter Wen’s smile when he discovered the LED valve

stem lights that were placed on his tires by the group

without his knowledge.

4. The visit to l’art et l’automobile in Harper, where

automobile memorabilia is sold by Jacques and his

wife, all housed in an amazing barn brimming with rare

and desirable car art.

3. The libations, conversation, and laughs after the drive.

2. Hill Country and its roads and scenery.

1. Making new friends and creating wonderful memories

. . . true Driving Friendships.

Already looking forward to next year!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

It seems like certain Slipstream issues take on a

common name, the Christmas issue, the Autocross

issue, well, this is probably the Rennsport issue. The

cover photo and the center spread pay tribute to the

event, but also the people that enjoy, attend and yes

enable us to take a week off of work and play race car

driver. We like to say it’s not just the cars, it’s the people.

Never was that more evident than before, during and

after my first trip to Rennsport.

I looked at the ads and thought ‘that would be fun to

do someday’. Cue the music and dreamy recap sequence.

Things just began to line up. I was encouraged by fellow

members, connected with tickets for sale, a corral pass,

a group to drive out with. But things like that don’t

just happen magically, it takes people. I’m sorry if this

offends anyone, but car people are the best people. I

know dog people are great and Aggies are generally

very nice unless you happen to mention that you think

Texas has a better team this year, but car people have a

special bond that is a little different. Take for example

a new friend that I met in the Porsche corral at the

event. We started in the usual manner, talking about

our cars and the event, fifteen minutes later I wound

up with an invitation

to take his spot in the

next day’s parade lap

around Laguna Seca

(a boyhood dream) if

I was willing to bring

his boys with me. I

nearly choked trying to

accept. That has never

happened to me at a

PTA meeting.

I’m not a special

case, far from it. A

quick look on the

Maverick Facebook

page will confirm that

our members stand

ready to lend advice,

experience and hands

at a moments notice.

Don’t just ‘Enjoy the

drive!’, enjoy the

friends new and old.

Giants in the mist. A moment I won’t

forget, the 917 warming up on a quiet

morning in the California fog.
